Norwich v Brighton: match preview

·1-min read

Norwich are no longer pointless but still appear a way off the mark so far. The international break will have given Daniel Farke extra time to plan a resurgence but he needs his players to start showing up. Recent personal reasons for missing games aside, one time bright spark Todd Cantwell’s last goal in the Premier League was 21 games ago on 1 January 2020. And while Norwich are predictably struggling, Brighton have confounded expectations appearing to be this season’s surprise package. Graham Potter will expect a positive result and deservedly so as his side have taken seven points from three matches on the road so far. Tariq Lamptey may also make his long-awaited return after 10 months out. Graham Searles
